Data Set: fMRI Meta-Analyses

This data set is the result of a systematic search in PubMed and APA PsycINFO for fMRI meta-analyses.


📊 Meghan Testerman. (2021). Data Set: fMRI Meta-Analyses (Version 1.0) [Data set]. Zenodo. http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4974284



These records would be suitable for:

  • meta-meta analysis on fMRI meta-analyses

  • research questions regarding neuroimaging meta-analysis methodology (especially for those interested in coordination-based meta-analyses (CBMA): activation likelihood estimation (ALE) using GingerALE software, multi-level kernel density analysis (MKDA), seed-based d mapping (SDM), or image-based meta-analyses.

NOTE: These data are the raw search results from PubMed and PsycINFO and have been deduplicated but have NOT been screened for any inclusion criteria. This means you may find records in these results that are not, in fact, meta-analyses but still have the search terms (below) present in the title or abstract of the paper.


The data set is available in three formats: .csv, .ris, and a Zotero shared library
